#11137 Rhetorical Devices Used in Literary Logic

The Palindrome effect
Palindromes are words and sentences that read both forwards as well as backwards. These take a bit of thinking to create. Usually for entertaining purposes. But, they do have an esoteric aspect. Their use can be traced to ancient and modern Magic spells because of the reversibility they offer. You'll find extensive use of the palindrome effect in numbers too. Great for poetic rhythm effects and they're seen in religious texts as well.

“Folks, our nation’s hen houses are on the attack. If we don’t act now, it’s no more fried egg and cheese biscuits for us. No more fried chicken. No more chicken noodle soup. No more Wendy’s Spicy Chicken sandwiches. It’s gone. All gone. As soon as these bastards get their hands on our chicken, the only thing we’ll have is either Curried Chicken or Chicken Tacos. And who eats that shit? This is America folks. If we let ISIS and illegal Mexicans get to our chickens, it’s over folks. The American dream is dead. But, I’m here to tell you folks, I’ve read on Twitter and Facebook that the best thing we can do to keep the chickens safe is guarding them with nature’s top assassin. The fox. The fox is a ruthless killer, heartless, and he’ll snuff out anyone trying to hurt our nation’s precious hens. God bless foxes, and God bless America!” said Trump. The crowd of news reporters and farmers erupted in a thunderous applause.

Free verse is fun because it provides an atmosphere of freedom when creating syncopated rhythms in your style. It follows neither rhyme nor reason in its schemes. There are no rules in this form of expression. It allows for different forms and cadences to provide a fluid structure. Nothing is regular and there is no metering involved. It relies on intonation and forms of sound to convey specific meanings. Combining patterned elements of words, sentences, phrases, and vibrations it creates a poetic expression that is free from artificial creation. Free verse doesn't require a topic and are usually about common everyday things. It can describe animals, feelings, objects, or anything the writer wishes. 
Free verse flows with the river ...
Free verse falls like torrential rain...
Free verse has a frequency all its own ...

Adages and Proverbs. 
An adage is a vivid expression of speech based on facts that is considered by many people to be a genuine truth. They're usually sayings that have been around for a long period of time. Often repeated over generations and sometimes can be considered as a proverb. Adages are usually universal, having been tested over different periods of time and still holding its truth within. The only real difference I can see is that a parable is more of a short story with a moral lesson at the end. Whereas an Adage is a short expression or saying of universal truth. Adages are great in advertising and scripting. It gives a certain awareness to facts and can be applied in situations to convey a deeper meaning. 
Parables use symbols and other imagery that are easily recognized. Taking complicated truths and telling it in such a way where it becomes communicative to an audience. They help to understand philosophical lessons and make them relatable in everyday life.

Don't cha just love the sound of this word? It's so sharp and snakey. Always good with an exclamation point! This word means a snide and sarcastic comment. They can be both wildly stupid or incredibly clever. Depending on the point of view. It combines cynicisms with blended wit. They'r usually quick little quips to tease someone into an emotional response. Derisive in nature they can and will at times cut deep into the psyche. It can be used as a defensive device to cut away at an individual like an ad hominem attack. Most of the time snarks are used to mask points of view.

Red Herrings!
One of my favorites.
These little devils are information brought into a discussion to cause a diversion from an original point.
They are meant to mislead and are lead ins for other types of fallacies.
The name Red Herring, itself, denotes a rancid smell.
A strong stench to distract us from the sweet fragrance of truth.
In literature they are commonly used in mystery and thriller stories to keep the bad guy hidden until the very end.
And then their are the politicians.
They use them frequently.
Think about what the major media spits out too.
How much of what you see and hear on the news could be a Red Herring?
One more thing to consider.
The very first prospectus filed by any company with the SEC is called a red herring.
These only give out general information about the company.

It leads people down a wicked path.


Assigning names on who to hate.


These groups are pieces in a game from above.


These teams are used against each other on purpose.


Reasons to motivate hate are a great way to promote propaganda.


All for profit and control of resources. 


Doom and gloom is a great marketing strategy. The bucks still keep rolling in...

I like those above Twainisms. Maybe they should be a legitimate category in rhetoric.

#9895 Rhetorical Devices Used in Literary Logic

How can I make a thread of this nature without including metaphors?
Metaphors are one of the most common types of speech. They add a sort of definition and color because they describe a comparison between two things that are most often apart except for a common characteristic that can link the two together. A noun or a verb can be described as something different. 
An example comparing a chef to a writer. Learning to write can be visualized with cooking skills. One must learn to bake, roast, chop, and cut. Including all the little things that go with it through practice and experience. They're great for sharpening the imagination and to give further understanding in communicating ideas 
Metaphors are different from similes in that they don't use terms like "like" or "as" to compare two things. Metaphors make hidden comparisons. Portraying one thing as being something else but not that something else. There is an implied implicit meaning.

Doppelgangers really add spice to some of the best stories out there.
They can show different aspects inside the nature of an individual character. 
The Picture of Dorian Grey shows this very clearly:
Then there also is the relationship aspect involved. 
As shown in Lukes conflict and fear of becoming his father:

Ever hear of a Doppelganger? These are characters created in literature that define a mirror image within a principal persona. A common definition usually references a look-alike type of personality. Traditionally, doppelgangers are the evil aspect inserting wicked ideas into the head of it's counterpart. They're used to show other parts of a character study to create a conflict within a story and to show the darker more objectionable sides inside a protagonists mind and heart. Showing the possible dark side as well as the light...

Are you tired of hearing the same type of stories over and over again? Does the news you see everyday seem commonplace? Warn-out stories told in repetitive fashion. Are the events portrayed becoming predictable? If so, you could be the victim of a Cliché. 
Cliches and Composition Theory
A cliché is a traditional form of human expression (in words, thoughts, emotions, gestures, acts) which–due to repetitive use in social life–has lost its original, often ingenious heuristic power. Although it thus fails positively to contribute meaning to social interactions and communication, it does function socially, since it manages to stimulate behavior (cognition, emotion, volition, action), while it avoids reflection on meanings.
- Anton C. Zijderveld

#9708 Rhetorical Devices Used in Literary Logic

Posted by Red on 23 May 2017 - 03:29 PM

Allegory is a wonderful way to tell a story. They're used for stories that teach ideas and principles. Usually with a moral outlook. Allegory is often confused with symbolism. Allegory includes actions and characters to stand in for ideas. Symbols don't tell a story. An example would be Plato's cave story: it tells how some people stand in ignorant chains and others see the light. Allegory allows people to express layers of meaning within there own stories. 
A literary example of allegory would be "Animal Farm", by George Orwell. 
“All animals are equal but a few are more equal than others.”
